We are so happy with the loan Anthy provided us with, we have recommended her and Chocolate to our friends & family & feel / have felt completely supported by Anthy’s expertise.

Chris from Chocolate Money went above and beyond to help me secure my first home loan. They made the loan the easiest part about buying a home. I will Definitely be using them again for any future property financing.
We highly recommend speaking with Joseph! From the very first phone call we received exceptional service. We had limited time to secure finance for our dream block. Quite a complex situation but Joseph found a way and always kept us fully up to date throughout the entire process. He worked above and beyond to help us out and we are so grateful for all he did. Having tried another broker before Joseph, I can honestly say I’d never go elsewhere again. Joseph truly cares about helping people achieve their goals, highly recommend giving him a call. Thanks Joseph!
Couldn’t recommend Chocolate money’s service enough. A quick email and some information and I’ve got a cheaper home loan interest rate. Easiest thing to do to save money.
The team at Chocolate Money deliver a fast, complete and very professional service!
If you need finance then you need to speak to the guys at Chocolate Money.

We cannot thank Anthy enough for all her work in helping us with our finance needs over the last 10 years. Having only dealt with Banks prior to Anthy being recommended to us, it was a relief to finally have someone who was considering our needs first and advocating for us to make sure that our finance requirements were met.
Anthy and everyone else that we have dealt with at Chocolate Money have been professional and supportive throughout the whole process and to this date they continue to provide “finance health checks” to make sure that everything is ok.
We can’t recommend them highly enough and will definitely continue to use their expert knowledge and services.

5 stars. We'd give 6 if we could. We couldn't recommend Anthy enough- made everything so simple and straightforward and just lovely to deal with throughout the whole process. If you're looking for a broker, Anthy, Kim and Chocolate Money are your guys.
Chris Katrantzis is the lending professional I trust with all of my personal and business finances. I don't have to worry about a thing and I know I am getting the best deal out there and getting it done. Excellent proactive approach as well, always looking out for special offers for us and advising us on when it is a good time to revisit our setup.
Our business puts trust in the team at Chocolate Money to find us the best deals & work with us towards the best outcomes. Every single time they deliver! We can't thank Anthy, Kim, Louisa & the rest of the team enough!
I had numerous properties with one of the big 4. I thought being a master builders member Id try Chocolate money. Best decision I made. Joseph the broker went above and beyond. He came to site to discuss my loans, helped me with all the paperwork. Had investment rates of 3.34 went to 2.69, his advice was spot on and he did all the hard work. My saving is $8500 a year, its better in my pocket then the banks. I recommend anyone with a big 4 loan to call Chocolate money, swap over to one of the other lenders and use the extra savings for a holiday. The follow up and all the change over was made easy by chocolate money and joseph the broker. Don't wait, call now .
Dealt with Chris at chocolate money for my first home loan, he was very professional and thorough with the whole process!
We have known Anthy for the last 5 years and we can defiantly say that she has played a vital role in the growth of our business in many aspects.

Whether it is home loans, business loans, investment loans, construction loans, Anthy has portrayed knowledge, professionalism, and expertise in all aspects of lending.
We are extremely grateful for the countless hours and commitment that she has shown us, and always willing to share her knowledge and provide her support.
Anthy has worked many miracles over our journey and made sure all our loans settle in a timely manner. This experience has not only been enjoyable but also very successful and rewarding.
We thank her dearly for the extraordinary work and dedication that she has put into our business over the past five years.
If you are looking for assistance in finance, we highly recommend using Anthy and the team at Chocolate Money for their expert knowledge and services.
My experience engaging with Chocolate Money (and Anthy specifically) have exceeded my expectations.
I am very satisfied with the service provided by Chocolate Money in assisting me with managing my home loan. My dealings with Anthy and the team at chocolate money have been highly professional and rewarding, and they have gone out of their way to make my life easier.
I would recommend that anyone looking for brokering or financial advice to engage Chocolate Money for their highly professional services.
It is a pleasure to show my appreciation for Anthy Lakkotripis and Chocolate Money. I presented Anthy with a very complex and difficult funding situation which she managed magnificently. This magnificence extended beyond securing the funding to dealing with my high anxiety, financial naivety, and pressing time requirements. Anthy managed all of this efficiently and effectively. Anthy, her colleague Kim and the entire Chocolate Money organisation did a fantastic job for which I am extremely grateful. Also, the external groups Anthy engaged with were excellent. Outstanding Anthy and all, thank you!
